There are a lot of great things about this tent, however, a few minor design issues made for a wet camping experience.
The Good: There is a ton of space - my wife and I easily fit 2 cots and gear, with plenty of room to stand up and move around. The canvas is extremely breathable - it was never too hot or too cold. The set up was also easy - was easily set up by 1 person, as the other prepared the rest of campsite.
The Bad: On night 3 of a 7 night camp (our 2nd time using the tent), we experienced a rain storm. We zipped up the window flaps, opened the top vents and went to sleep. As the rain continued, I woke up in the middle of the night and could hear a dripping sound - I reached to the floor and found a huge puddle inside the tent. We were able to put a bowl under the drip, but everything was already soaked. In the days after the rain, I found the issue. While the window canvas was zipped up, ran would still make its way through the screen, onto the canvas (obviously), the water then drains down the window canvas to where the screen meets (also, obvious). However, there is a small space in each corner where the screen and canvas meet where the water can not drain anywhere (it's like a small pocket between two layers of canvas) - it's also in the lower corner of every window. If you unzip the canvas part of the window and and look in the lower corners, it's that area. We found the water would pool there, then seep through the seems into the tent. At one point, we had 3 of the 8 corners dripping. A silicone spray wouldn't fix this, since there water can't run off anywhere, it would continue to just pool. So, a small design to increase the durability, resulted in a wet tent inside.
Prior to finding the cause, I reached out to Customer Service - they were very little help in troubleshooting. They sent links explaining leaks and recommended to use silicone spray - which is helpful, but I was pretty disappointed when they simply sent word for word text from the maintenance part of the website. I guess I was expecting other recommendations, since I had already read the FAQs.
Maybe he I just had a bad one, but I already returned it - will likely look for another option.
Thanks Christopher for your honest review.
Not a design flaw. We sell a lot of tent and there is not issue here. I imagine you tent was not yet "seasoned", and after this night would have been sealed and the best tent you ever owned.
We took our new tent to Flaming Gorge last week 7/5/2020. It was easy to set up and is the best quality tent I have ever owned...
The tent looks sturdy and roomy, 1k canadian is a lot of money but the tent shows value, however i had a little problem and even with warranty they did not exchange the defected/broken part , you would imagine spending so much you should have some kind of good warranty... didn't happen.
Thanks for your honest review. We do not have an unconditional warranty (meaning if it is broke we fix it). The reason for this is that is the cost of that warranty is shared equally across customers who generally take care of their stuff, and customer who do not. We have a great customer service team. If something is broke that should not be (we take care of it, example a pole breaks during normal use). If something breaks that is not our fault (your fault--example you bent a pole running over it with your car), we provide replacement parts at a reasonable price. The customer is also responsible for the shipping, which can be a little pricy in Canada.
So first off we ordered 10x14 Kodiak basic. Said it was in stock from competitive edge products. It wasn't. Wouldn't have another till end of august 2020. So we asked if they had a 10x10 basic in stock. Yes we do. Wrong received e-mail saying they were sold out before our order. So they asked if they could send us the 10x10 deluxe for the same price. Great!! I thank them for doing that. But when we received our tent and set it up to season it, there were two holes in the floor, and the outside was filthy. So after scrubbing the outside with distilled white vinegar and hot water, most of the filth come off. So after spraying it down with a hose, I went inside to inspect, and there was standing water in one corner and in front of the double zippered door. Waiting to hear from Kodiak on what to do now. Percs . Easy set up, good venting with big windows and two built in vents.
Cons. Floor obviously not very puncture resistant, and tent not very well waterproof. Didn't even make it out for a trip!
Thanks for your honest review. Sorry about the trouble with the order process. Normally that goes pretty smooth.
Regarding the floor, ours is one of the toughest on a tent you will find. That said, a sharp object will still puncture it. For that reason, it is a good idea to remove such sharp objects before pitching your tent.
Regarding the leaks--Yikes, with the vinegar. Not sure what made you do that, but you just washed the waterproofing off your canvas. Please read the owner's manual. Not to worry you can easily retreat the area. Call us if we can help.
Our tents Hydra-shield waterproofing is excellent and very durable. You can expect to go through drenching rains with no water inside your tent.
I took my tent out last year. GREAT TENT!. Grandand kids loved as they said "cant see through it". The wind blew hard. Mine was the only tent still up. I used to own a tip for camping. My Kodiak as alot easier to set up. Great product.
ended up upgrading to the vx and glad i did. this is a very high quality tent, was worth every penny!! customer service was excellent also
We got the camping bug this summer and chose this tent to start back camping. Picked it up on a Monday, seasoned on Tuesday and was camping Thursday. We had a small rain shower and it kept us dry. The following weekend we headed up to fish the North Fork of the Clearwater; it was overcast when we arrived and the rain held off until the afternoon. It rained non stop, we remained perfectly dry. Another group of camper inquired the next morning as they were packing up about how we faired during all the rain, I let them know we remained dry the entire time, they didn’t fair so well and we’re heading out all wet. I just wanted to say thanks for a great tent!
Great tent easy to set up and lots of room inside. Loving being able to stand up in the morning to get dressed rather than the yoga poses required in my not Kodiak tent.
Very well made. Purchased for 2 fall hunts in Co. Tried this tent out on a turkey hunt this spring and I am very impressed. No interior center pole which is a bonus when setting a cot, small table and chair inside
